The rain has stopped when we reach the Biz Walk at Tasik Prima, Puchong. The weather has turned to breezy which was perfect for run. We saw many participants dressed up in their ‘70s-themed look at the Fun Run, and we had some warm up exercise before the flag off at 7.30am. The flagged off was done by Tan Sri Azman Yahya, Executive Chairman of Symphony Life Berhad.
The track was 5.8 km in total, and there were 2 checkpoints along the way. Now, the checkpoints are not the same as the other run, That ‘70s Run checkpoints are indeed very cute, where we the participants grooved to the disco tunes of the 70’s. Everyone had fun dancing and freshen up themselves there before claiming our retro-designed medals at the finish line.
After the hard work, everyone claimed their food pack, as well as took the chance to sample the variety of food and beverages served at the mini fest and participated in other exciting activities planned for the event.
Mr Stewart Tew, Chief Operating Officer (Sales and Marketing), Symphony Life Berhad, said that the event was aimed at bringing families and friends together to promote a healthier lifestyle among Malaysians.
“This outdoor event will not only create awareness on the importance of having a healthy lifestyle, but also brings the residents of Taman Tasik Prima Puchong closer together and fosters good neighbourhood interaction,” added Tew.
There were over 10 food trucks and vendors present to serve the participants and the general public. Free health checks were also provided by Lincoln University College. The checks included diabetes, BMI (Obesity checks), and blood pressure checks. Arthritis Foundation Malaysia (AFM) also supported the event and an exhibition to raise awareness about arthritis.
Not only that, the organiser has prepared a variety of entertaining activities such as blowing giant bubbles, street clown performance, inflatable playground, face painting, colouring workshop, and photo booths to pose at were also available for the whole family to enjoy.
The Fun Run not just ended like that, the on-stage activities commenced with the selection of the best-dressed participant awards, where Abu Azmir Kassim took the crown for male category, while Samantha Sharminie and Dinesh Roshaut won the female and children categories respectively. They won RM800 worth of Parksons vouchers, sponsored by Golden Prima Builders Sdn. Bhd.
Participants also took part in some mini games and contests, and lucky draws with prizes worth of up to RM10, 000 were up for grabs. The grand prizes included a TV, bicycles, smartphone, tablet, and more. Congratulations to all the lucky draw winners!

Symphony Life Berhad has a good presence in the Taman Tasik Prima area and they continue to enhance the township with a variety of modern developments. A good example is their premium, low density Elevia Residence. There are only 34 units of 3 storey villas with each home fronting a linear garden that comes with a private lift and 128 units of condominium with 3 lifts serving 6 condo units per floor. This project is scheduled for completion in Q3 2017. This development coupled with an upcoming lakefront mall, will add plenty of vibrancy to the neighbourhood. An added advantage is the new interchange to Taman Tasik Prima that has made travelling to this part of Puchong quite a breeze.
